My GPD WIN flex cable broke
« on: July 31, 2017, 02:18:04 pm »
Today i powered up my gpd win and the screen was black i closed the lid and opened it again it turned on at 45% lid open and when i opened a little more it was black again.
I opened my gpd and disassemble the display the flex cable that connects the the screen to the main board was broken.
Currently i send it for repair at a local service the will try to repair the broken cable but if they don't i need a replacement cable.Can anybody tell me where can i buy replacement flex cable for the gpd win please i will be very grateful.


P.S.
I've send email to kendyzhu777 from gpd team asking about where can i find replacement and if they are willing to sell me one or more (just to have a spare)

Interestingly, my GPD Win from Jan. 10 has a different ribbon cable, but my GPD XD has a black ribbon cable like your Win does and that broke on me in a similar way. I wonder if the black ribbon cable is not as sturdy?

I think that I have the same issue.

I powered up my win only to see and dark backlight then a lighter one. The fan was going so i decided to use the mini HDMI and had output, even the touch screen worked an an input on my TV but I still had no output on the gpd win screen. I tried to track down if it was a driver problem but saw no issues there.

I just disassembled my win and saw that the ribbon cable was crimped and bent in weird ways inside with a few nicks in the cable itself.

I'm also trying to contact kendyzhu777 about a replacement part.

When you send emails to kendy send them  at 07-08 am Chinese time you have a better chance to get response but trust me they don't really care.Many 2016 z8700 units have a broken flex cable problem gpd should start selling the proper spare parts (battery,flex cable,keyboard,analog sticks) instead of screen protectors charging cables and plastic buttons.
